"One must strive a little for the epic, old boy."
Meet Henri, Gustave, and Phillippe, three veterans of the Great War, living in retirement at a home for soldiers. When not admiring the local ladies or undermining the nuns who run the home, they can be found on their favourite terrace plotting adventure and escape. These three unlikely companions help each other face that great leveller, age, with grace and good humour........... and an occasional spat between cantankerous old codgers.
Join the Chatsworth Players for the delightful "Heroes". Written by Gerald Sibleyras and translated into English by Tom Stoppard, this award-winning comedy (Olivier Award, 2006) is the perfect way to spend a summer evening.
